Logan County Genealogical Society will meet Saturday, September 16, 11:00 a.m., at the Oklahoma Territorial Museum, 406 E. Oklahoma.


April Stanley will lead an interactive discussion that aims to inform genealogy enthusiasts about the science underlying DNA-analysis services. We'll start with some basic concepts in biology and then move into the techniques used by these companies, like Ancestry. Questions and participation from the audience are encouraged. This discussion will center on some common questions that have been posed by the genealogy community: How do we determine how different two pieces of DNA are? What is mitochondrial DNA?
April has a Masters of Science degree in Microbiology from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). As a graduate student and as adjunct professor, she has taught undergraduate and graduate courses in Biology, Microbiology, and Molecular Biology at UIUC, San Diego State University, and the University of Central Oklahoma. She currently is the Manager of Cell Line and Strain Development at Cytovance Biologics. In this role she leads a group of people who engineer cells to express proteins for therapeutic use. She lives in Oklahoma City, and volunteers her time to the Oklahoma Territorial Museum. She is the sister of Erin Brown, Curator, Oklahoma Territorial Museum, Guthrie.
